An Increase In Law Enforcement Will Be Protecting The Roads for Fourth Of July Weekend
Along with an increase in the number of hot dog purchases this week, the number of law enforcement officers patrolling the roads will also be increasing.
Florida Highway Patrol Captain Nancy Rasmussen said from July 4 to July 7, the “Drive Sober Campaign” will be increasing local and county enforcement in an effort to keep impaired drivers off the road.
“What we are trying to do is prevent people from driving under the influence cause that causes great harm to the people out there who are abiding by the law and driving soberly,” Rasmussen said.
Several hundred impaired drivers are pulled over every year during this long weekend.
If people plan on making alcohol a part of your weekend celebration, the Florida Highway Patrol would like to remind everyone to designate a sober driver before the celebrations begin.
